Mom's Cookies

This is the first year in many that I didn't do much holiday baking.  Usually by now I have a few containers of cookies sitting on the counter.  I made a batch of thumbprint cookies a while back, but they have been long gone.  We don't really need the sugary junk, but it is tradition!!  My Mom had a table she used just at Christmas to stash the containers of goodies.  Fudge, snowball cookies, pralines, a coconut cake, and the most coveted of all -- fruitcake cookies.  I know, yuck! Everybody hates fruitcake!!  But these cookies are nothing like actual sticky fruitcake.  Just a nutty, cinnamon melt in your mouth goodness!  My Mom had gotten the recipe from a friend in the 70s and it just wouldn't be Christmas with out them.  I made a double batch today, so hopefully that will last until Christmas Eve!
